Caption: Stanislaus River Area Native People's Monument
Additional Description: Just on the other side of the Stanislaus River from the Buena Vista Marker, by the remains of the Tulloch Mill, is a monument to the native Mi-Wuk and Yokut tribes that lived in the area. The monument itself is very simple, consisting of a pole topped 3 feathers, and further down on the pole is mounted the metal silhouette of a salmon. In addition there is a memorial panel to the side consisting of an area map marking the location of native villages, and an inscription reading: "This monument commemorates the the native peoples, Mi-Wuk and Yokuts, who lived, loved, and fought for their freedom along the Stanislaus River. May they be remembered as long as the river flows. May the salmon again fill the Stanislaus courses."
